【明報專訊】Jules: That was one of the best Chinese meals I've had in a long time.
Vilma: Yes, it really was, especially the Beggar's Chicken.
Jules: It's a shame all the chopsticks they use in that restaurant have to go into the rubbish.
Vilma: Well, not any more. There's a guy in the town who's started a business recycling them into all sorts of things, like mobile stands and even tables.
Jules: Wow, that's fantastic. Wherever did he get that idea from?
Vilma: Well he said his 'Aha!' moment was when he saw his little boy playing with chopsticks at home and trying to make things with them, like animals and things like that.
Jules: So that made him think of using chopsticks to make useful things out of them that he could sell.
Vilma: That's right. He's got arrangements to collect used chopsticks from every Chinese restaurant for miles around, including this one, and the business is doing really well.
■Aha 是感嘆詞，音譯是「啊哈」，用來表示突然發現或明白某事物，例如：Aha! I have found it/I understand（啊哈，我找到了／我明白了！）所謂 aha moment，也可寫作 Aha moment 或 "Aha!" moment，指突有領悟的一刻，或早前記不起某事而突然記起的一刻，例如：（1）The aha moment sent Archimedes jumping out of his bathtub and shouting "Eureka!"（阿基米德突然有所領悟，忍不住跳出浴盆，大叫：「我找到了！」）（2）My "Aha!" moment came when I saw how he taught his students（我見到他教學生的方法，突有領悟）。
